The Guild Doyle Dykes Signature Model is the result of extensive collaboration among Dykes, master luthier Ren Ferguson and the team at Guild's New Hartford, Conn., factory. Crafted to Dykes' exacting specifications, the cutaway grand orchestra guitar delivers a rich, full and balanced sound that will please the most discerning guitarist. It's an incredibly articulate instrument, with truly stunning headroom and dynamic range.
With an abalone-trimmed AAA-grade red spruce top and AAA quilted big-leaf maple back and sides, the guitar looks as amazing as it sounds. The dark-tinted top imparts an aged look, and the 20-fret ebony fingerboard and abalone-inlaid bridge contribute to a distinctively elegant appearance.
Other special features include custom D-55-style abalone/mother-of-pearl fret markers rotated 90 degrees and located on the bass side of the fingerboard, a slightly shallower body than that of the standard F-47 on which the model is based, scalloped red spruce bracing, abalone rosette, three-piece mahogany neck with rosewood center, 12" fingerboard radius, stylized Guild "G" headstock overlay, extra tuner spacing to accommodate Dykes' signature behind-the-nut string bends, bone nut and saddle, and a pure gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Each Doyle Dykes Signature Model comes with a dark brown hard-shell case lined with dark-green plush.
